Hermione Drops Out…for now.

Well just for a while, she says.  Emma Watson (a.k.a. Hermione Granger of Harry Potter fame) has been attending Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.  But, she’s announced that she’s leaving the Ivy League school, at least temporarily, to promote Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  She posted the following message on her official website:

“As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student and fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.  I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects,” Watson, 20, continued. “I will still be working towards my degree…it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought.”
